limbaugh saying the health care logo looks like a russian swastika? >> i don't know what to say about that. americans are suffering under the rising costs of health care, they are paying 30% more out of pocket than they did, it's threatening their jobs, they are being denied health coverage. >> we're debating that. >> trying to discuss that in a civil way is extremely important. >> you were a journalist for three decades, you worked for abc, cbs, you were a guest on this program many times. is it uncomfortable to be pushing an administration line on health care on people who were your former colleagues. >> you mean trying to promote, advocate on behalf of health insurance reform is a gratifying thing to do. this is the country's greatest need. they have been waiting for decades -- >> if you were still a journalist you would be sitting in this seat asking the questions i am. instead you're a saleswoman. >> it's something all of us in the administration believe deeply. as a journalist i covered the last effort to try to bring health insurance reform to the country. i saw how the special inte

't have a leader or that it needs a leader. your its leaders, rush limbaugh, michael steele, newt gingrich. is it really important that the party or the movement of conservatives have a leader as the findable or is it sort of an open sores that there could be multiple leaders and moldable groups and they will have a ultimately the same effect and turn the country around that would take back the white house and congress over the next few years? who wants to grab that? the in the case of leadership i think there is plenty of time. this time four years ago few americans knew barack obama. there is plenty of time for us to evolve a leader for the next presidential cycle. in the meantime we all is volunteers, we all is that the vista movement have to take a role. we have tulane gates, have to build with tomorrow communities. the problem that i think it's happened in our own movement through the years is that a lot of conservatives went to washington to do good and they did very well. and they stayed and they bought into the system, and they bought into the benefits of the system and of power. w

center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is the question. what is going on here and how doeses the president take center stage? >> what he's saying is insane. but i guess i would say that the first thing is, there's been conventional wisdom. it's such a tough issue. and the obama administration is better than the biden and bipartisan so leaders of both parties didn't do it. they chose more or less the democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. and it's not just the crazies, but if you take overall poll ratings for health care, people are -- the american public are not as skeptical as when the clinton health care collapsed. there's a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disapprovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are people who are angry and there are people who are oppose

's going on here and how does the president retake center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is insane. what he's saying is insane. the first thing is it has been conventional wisdom among the smartest people in washington, this is a tough issue that needs to be done on a bipartisan basis. the obama administration decided not to. leaders of both parties could have gone out to the meetings. they didn't do that. they chose more or less a democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. it's not just the crazy, among who we just saw some. if you take overall ratings for health care, the american public is as skeptical as they were when clinton care collapsed. so, it's not just the crazies. there is a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disapprovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are peo

side like rush limbaugh, god, and the facts, but -- but even with all that, how do you see the -- the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, nonpolitically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and, like, showmanship up against us where they twist our words and just sell lies all day that we can hardly combat? >> well, let me say, first of all, that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan and then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of 1980, and then i served with him for eight years in the congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue that we had a harder time because we didn't have limbaugh, we didn't have fox news, we didn't have hannity, we didn't have the internet and so there was actually probably a greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "the new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if yo

on republicans, limbaugh. go ahead. caller: my senator, he did call the house and invited me in on a town hall meeting. he must know i'm a democrat. he was only calling on people for their comments. i was thinking about it while i was on the phone. he's saying all this stuff happening. like the other caller earlier said, there's really not a bill. i felt like he was giving out misunderstood to all of us. it is good that he called but i didn't get to comment. i didn't like the fact that he was giving his opinions rather than listening to any questions. host: how many questions did he take in caller: it went about 45 minutes. he just talked to us rather than listening to what we had to say. host: some people had comments. they were telling him about situations they were going through. thanks for calling in. >> people are either eligible for medicaid another 800-0000 are many that have healthcare. you are really looking at about 8 million people. that's a question you can have. you know right there they aren't telling you the truth. jo they don't cover the issue at these hearings. i paid 22 of t
